Note : The color difference is due to the lighting in the kitchen. The actual color is the ones shown in the main pics...just incase if you are wondering about the color difference :)

My Notes:

  • You can use roasted cumin seeds powder instead of cumin seeds.
  • Reg the spice measures, you can experiment them according to your taste.
  • I added kashmiri chilli powder so it gave a good orangeish red color to the chapathi
  • The chapathi is very soft and flavourful that you dont even need any side dish for it.
